        It was Claremont's love of Wolverine that helped make him the media juggernaut that he is today.


        Actually, that was Byrne and Frank Miller who made Logan the juggernaut he became. Claremont thought him boring, and was actually planning to kill him off.

    Killing him off? My understanding was that Claremont intended to turn Logan into a villain by having the Hand brainwash him.

That's my understanding as well. I recall reading in a fanzine back in the day interviewing Claremont post-X-Men what some of his plans would have been had he continued, and I recall reading that exact same scenario, in addition to claiming he would have killed off Professor X 'once and for all' and forced Magneto to become a hero. Or something along those lines.
